Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood will appear at the opening night of a new bar and nightclub which is set to bring a bit of tropical sunshine to a town.
Palm Beach Bar and Club will open in the former Bar Life, on the corner of Commercial Way and Sheep Street in Wellingborough, on Saturday, March 31.
Hip hop DJ Tim will DJ on the opening night at the new venue, which is being opened by brother and sister team Natoyah Williams and Khavan Haye from Wellingborough.
Mrs Williams said the aim was to open the bar part of the venue during the day so it could serve food and be family friendly.
There are also plans to hold nights aimed at different audiences, including under 18s and over 30s nights.
In the nightclub, workmen have been busy creating a fresh new look for the venue.
Mrs Williams said: “We are trying to make it more of a family bar during the day. We will be selling food, not a hot kitchen but sandwiches, jacket potatoes and hot dogs, as well as coffees, cakes and little snacks.
“In the nightclub we haven’t done any structural changes but we have been doing work on it. We don’t want to give too much away about the decor but the theme is palm beach. It’s bringing a bit of summer to Wellingborough.”
Mrs Williams said the venue would work with Connexions and the youth offending team to put across messages about safe sex and drugs at under 18s nights, the first of which is to take place in June.
She said there would be a variety of different nights playing different music.
Mrs Williams said: “We want to be different, we are not like a traditional nightclub where every week you come in and it’s the same thing, we will be constantly changing it up.
“What we are trying to do is put Wellingborough back on the map and change it up again. We will have regular DJs coming in and possibly some artists, and we will be having live band nights.”
Mrs Williams said she was looking forward to opening the club with her brother. She said: “Me and my brother have both lived in Wellingborough all of our lives, my brother is a DJ and is quite well-known around the various towns.”
